Parking Tickets as a Moneymaking Tool

Hosted by

The City of Long Beach has decided to make its parking rules less insane. Currently, street sweeping restrictions start at 4 a.m., which means getting up before dawn to move your car. These restrictions led to plenty of tickets and plenty of cash in the city coffers. Parking tickets are one of the most reliable fundraising tools a city has, but definitely not the best.
